I am using Windows XP Home Edition SP2 and have been attempting to download the Vista upgrade advisor. My computer will not open an .msi file, and I can't find a download to fix the problem for my version of Windows, because apparently I shouldn't have a problem. Can anyone please help?

Yes, .MSI files are windows installer files. Sounds like your windows installer is broken or corrupted. Try going to run and typing

sfc/scannow

. You will need your XP CD. The process is silent. Just leave it until it completes and reboot.

Can you describe the problem in more detail.

Scanned to completion with no action. Since got what I need via download. Thanks for your time.

The download worked, along with a .net framework download. Thanks for your advice.
